Is Corel Painter better than Photoshop?

I had the same question for my last few commissions. I have been using Corel Painter for a couple of days. I have started experimenting a little. In my previous article, I used the same approach as usual with my brush selection. I tried to use the same selection in every composition, with an eye to create a unique look that would be easy to recognize. I think I am starting to get it right. I am still tweaking it to try different options, but for now I am quite happy with the results I am getting, so far. I know I can do better and better, so if anyone is interested in trying the same exact approach with Corel Painter, I would love to hear your thoughts on it. For now, let’s go back to our original topic of the day, the subject of brushes.

What are the best brushes for use with Corel Painter? (I had these brushes for a year now, and I would say the best set I have is on my collection of brushes) When I started with Corel it was mostly just a general brush selection. One option is the standard 3D drawing brushes such as a brush of blue for each of the vertices. Another option was the pencil in brush as that allowed me to quickly create basic structures, without having to think about details or shading at the time. A third option was the line brush. I love this option. It is an alternative option that will still allow for details that need to be covered without having to change the other brushes. The best brushes for use with Corel Painter are those with a 3D and/or pencil in brush, like the line brush or pencil in brush. I would like to thank Corel for allowing me to use their brushes and giving me the opportunity to compare them.

Here is a list of some of the best brushes for use with Corel Painter:

Note that all these brushes are only available with Corel Painter version 7.5 or better. Please also note that Corel Painter does not support the standard brushes in this list. That means that if you find the best brush for the job, then please let me know, and I will include it here.


Line brush in Corel Painter is a little brush with a rounded tip. The tip is not an exact circle, though. It may be a thin line, just to show the basic outline of the shape you are trying to create.
